A year ago, both Council Rock South and La Salle saw their baseball seasons end in devastating fashion. In an error-marred state-quarterfinal playoff, C.R. South yielded three runs in the bottom of the seventh and bowed to Spring-Ford, 6-5. La Salle, after jumping out to an 11-0 lead in the first 11/2 innings of a Catholic League semifinal against Neumann-Goretti, gave up 13 runs in a nightmarish sixth inning and fell, 18-13. The chance to come full circle comes on Friday, when the Golden Hawks and Explorers clash in a PIAA Class AAAA championship game set for 1 p.m. at Penn State's Medlar Field at Lubrano Park.

THE MOST pressing matter on my mind leading up to La Salle's Sweet 16 game on Thursday is how I am going to obtain a ticket. Not to the West Regional semifinal against Wichita State, but to the Flyers-Islanders matchup taking place in Philly on the same night. Let me explain. I'm a bit superstitious, and in my mind the only way for La Salle to win on Thursday, is for me to be in the building I've visited each day the Explorers have won an NCAA Tournament game this year - the Wells Fargo Center.

LOS ANGELES - The good doctor didn't mean to be contrary. Dr. John Giannini was not being obtuse, or ornery, or even particularly prickly the past 2 weeks, when he disputed the "Cinderella" tag affixed to his Explorers. His dispute, of course, was meant to legitimize La Salle in his own players' eyes. He's practically a sports psychologist, for goodness' sake. Don't let him mesmerize you with that soothing tone. La Salle was as Cinderella a story as any team, ever.

DAYTON, Ohio - At the start of the second half Wednesday, La Salle led by two against a Dayton team that hadn't lost at home in 13 games. Five minutes later, the Explorers found themselves in an eight-point hole and on the wrong side of a roaring home crowd. Block. Layup. Block. Layup. Block. Layup. With three straight defensive plays, the Flyers seized the momentum and the Explorers never recovered, falling behind by as many as 15 points before losing, 61-50, at University of Dayton Arena.

NOT EXACTLY sure where the time went, but Saturday at Gola Arena, La Salle will celebrate the 25th anniversary of the team that won more games than any in school history. The top four scorers from the 1989-90 team combined to score 8,516 career points and are ranked first, 10th, 12th and 16th in school history. The top scorer, Lionel Simmons, scored 3,217 points. Only two players in college basketball history have scored more. I caught a ride on the L-Train late in Lionel's freshman year and never got off. I was just learning about Philadelphia basketball and what a classroom that was - with head coach Speedy Morris, assistants Joe Mihalich, Fran Dunphy for a while, Randy Monroe, Rich Prendergast, Sam Rines, players Simmons, Doug Overton, Randy Woods, Jack Hurd, Bobby Johnson, Bron Holland, Keith Morris, Tim Legler, Craig Conlin and Rich Tarr, head managers Mike Watkins and then Michael "Gus" Carr.

THE LIGHT BLUE stands at Tom Gola Arena hummed from the boisterous devotees screaming at the top of their lungs. There was barely any time left. He had to make his move in 4 seconds. The inbounds pass popped into his hands. Three dribbles, then another step to halfcourt and the release flowed from his fingers as quickly as his flight from the baseline. Forty seven feet later, Jordan Price had his first big moment at La Salle University: a buzzer-beating, midcourt prayer answered in the 40th minute.

The La Salle Explorers put a defensive blanket over George Washington and didn't remove it until the game was over, holding the Colonials almost 20 points below their season average to score a decisive 63-50 victory Saturday at Tom Gola Arena. In ending a two-game losing streak, the Explorers halted the Colonials' six-game winning streak by holding them to just 39.5 percent shooting from the floor. La Salle, which never trailed, also forced the Colonials into an uncharacteristic 20 turnovers.

In the lexicon of our youth, when an offensive player gets hot he is said to "cook" his opponent, which aptly describes what Conwell-Egan guard Stevie Jordan did to visiting La Salle in yesterday's first half. Jordan, a 5-foot-10 junior, baked the Explorers defense for 19 first-half points en route to a slight halftime edge for the Eagles. However, by the second half, Shawn Witherspoon and Najee Walls - La Salle's defensive leaders - had resolved to stop Chef Jordan. "We gotta strap up," Witherspoon said he told Walls at halftime.

La Salle quarterback Kyle Shurmur was selected as the Robert W. Maxwell Memorial Football Club's high school player of the year for Pennsylvania. The 6-foot-4, 215-pound senior received the award Thursday night at a banquet at Drexelbrook Caterers in Drexel Hill. It is given annually to a player who excels in both athletics and academics, and serves his school and community. Shurmur, who will continue his career at Vanderbilt, threw for 2,523 yards and 28 touchdowns this past season while helping the Explorers go 8-3 and advance to the Catholic League Class AAAA final.
